Episode Description

Dr. Larry Altshuler has noticed a troubling dichotomy in the world of American health care. While the scope and depth of medical knowledge has expanded exponentially, actual improvement in the overall health of patients and the delivery of services has not kept pace, and too many patients still suffer.
Drawing from his years of experience and expertise in preventive, alternative and conventional medical therapies, Dr. Altshuler guides American health care consumers through the dysfunctions of the system to help them obtain the best possible care from medical professionals. His book, “Doctor, Say What?” empowers people to understand and navigate the health care delivery system in order to advocate for themselves or loved ones. He breaks down what works—and what doesn’t—to protect people from wasting their precious resources and suffering needlessly.
